the delicious miss dahl

As a fan of the book Miss Dahl's Voluptuous Delights, and of Miss Sophie Dahl herself, I was thrilled to see that she has a show based on her book, which is currently showing Sunday nights here in Canada.  She has a simple approach to making mostly vegetarian food - she doesn't eat meat herself, but will cook it for others - and is just a treat to watch.  She cooks on a giant white Aga in a beautiful, vintagey kitchen that I would love to own.  Some people have criticized the show because she isn't a chef - but I think that's precisely what I like about it.  Sadly, I hear that the show has been cancelled by the BBC - so I am going to savour the existing episodes.  If you'd like to try one of her recipes, I have made her flourless chocolate cake a number of times, and it's divine.  Just use a really good chocolate, like Green & Blacks, and you can't go wrong.

Not available for viewing via internet, but I did find a video on YouTube of her making super easy Tom Kha soup- my FAVORITE! I just ate and I'm hungry again.
